New Holland Pier Station
New Holland Pier Station
The station at New Holland Pier existed only to provide connections with the Humber ferry service. When The Humber Bridge opened in June 1981, the ferry service ceased and the station closed on the same day. However, it is seen here some eight years earlier with a train from Cleethorpes about to head back along the pier and then to Barton on Humber. There was another station at New Holland, rather grandly called New Holland Town, which served the village itself. In 1973 there were still three tracks here on the wooden decking but by the time of closure only one remained, see: TA0724 : New Holland Pier Today the pier is used as a grain and animal feed terminal (not accessible to the public) although, somewhat surprisingly, the station buildings have survived, see: TA0724 : New Holland Pier Trains still serve a resited station at New Holland on the Barton on Humber branch.
